Over the past decade alone, web technology has vastly increased data availability, and community innovators have created new tools for accessing, visualizing, analyzing, and sharing relevant data to advance equity-focused policies and investments. From local tools like the Metro Atlanta Equity Atlas, which connects local leaders to timely data across eight key areas of community well-being, to national tools like Mapping Police Violence, which provides interactive maps and charts on officer-involved deaths of community members, online data tools are equipping advocates, policymakers, funders, and the public with relevant data to advance health equity and move policy across a range of issue areas.
Join us, live from Portland, for a panel discussion with national leaders who are using and designing data tools to drive health equity and community action.
